Offering ski gear from as little as €1.99 to the most expensive item being just €29.00, we had a look at the LIDL skiwear range 2018 which is due to hit the shelves this week.
Ski holidays might not be the cheapest, but we reckon it’s always money well spent. Whether you are heading away with the family, a group of friends or on a romantic break, you will never regret a ski holiday. However, the cost of one can be significant, especially with a couple of rugrats in tow, so it’s great to identify a couple of areas where you can save a few bob.
Ski gear can get particularly pricey. Key pieces such as a good ski jacket, merino wool baselayers and good socks are definitely worth the investment. But not every item in your kit bag needs to be top of the range. Although we recommend opting for the trusted brands like Columbia, Patagonia etc for the big stuff like ski jackets and salopettes if you can stretch to it, the smaller items like baselayers in Lidl are both great and great value.
So with the range due to hit the shelves this Thursday, we thought there was no better time to take a closer look at what they are selling.
Lidl Ski Gear for Adults:
CRIVIT Ladies’/Men’s Ski Jacket
At just €29.99 we probably wouldn’t recommend this jacket for the higher resorts where temperatures plummet. However, it is windproof and water-repellent. Has a lift pass pocket, goggles pocket, headphone cable feed and zip pockets, sleeve with thumb hole and underarm ventilation. So, basically, it will do the job for spring skiing. It’s available in sizes 10 – 18 (Ladies’) and 32 – 40 (Men’s).
CRIVIT Ladies’/Men’s Ski Trousers
Price: € 19.99

CRIVIT Ladies’/Men’s Seamless Ski Baselayer Top

Our favourite items in the Lidl ski range are the baselayers. They are super affordable and they won’t let you down. They feature ventilation zones for breathability, are seamless are made with innovative performance yarn.
CRIVIT Ladies’/Men’s Powerstretch Jacket
A great option for an added layer is Lidl’s power stretch jacket which features a full zip and chin guard. It’s all about the layers up there in the mountains.
CRIVIT Ladies’/Men’s Ski Top
For an added layer to keep you toasty, there is this quick-drying and moisture-regulating ski top. It’s brushed inside and range of colours makes it a great addition to your wardrobe both on and off the slopes.

CRIVIT Ladies’/Men’s Ski Socks
Price: € 4.99
There’s no such thing as too many ski socks! These are a great option to stock up on. They feature cushioning at the toes, heel, achilles tendon, calf, instep and ankle. And are available in sizes 2.5 – 8 (Ladies’) and 6 – 11.5 (Men’s).
These are a lifesaver when you’ve been out on the slopes for a few hours and you’re fatigued, wet, cold and getting grumpy. Just activate these handy reusable hand warmers and bask in 60 minutes of heat. They can store heat up to 55°C and will certainly perk you up.
